|I don't think I've ever felt like Calvin, but I wouldn't|
want anyone telling me what my goals should be either!
I like to come up with one word goals for the year -- and this year I chose "health". I wasn't very excited about this idea, but decided that I would like it if I chose different thing related to health to study and work on each month. Lots of things affect our health, and I am quite excited to learn about some of those things. This month I made myself do menus and snack ideas because I figured I'd be healthier if we had less "whatever you can find in the fridge" dinners, and less quick junk food snacks. Now comes the part where I actually have to use the menus -- or it won't make any difference at all. Wish me luck!
I also have an idea, or goal, for my blog. I decided that, besides random posts about my family and our activities, I would post stories, or quotes, or ideas that could be talked about at dinner. I want to be better at talking about important, and interesting ideas at dinner -- but I usually draw a blank and everyone is done eating and gone before I come up with anything. Maybe I can do better at using the things I write about here to talk about when dinnertime rolls around. And, if things go really well, we'll be eating delicious, semi-healthy food from my menus, having important conversations, and all smiling like the picture above. Dream big!
